Smith (suspension) has entered a treatment center, ESPN reports.
Smith's reason for seeking treatment is unclear, but it comes just days after a Periscope video titled "Fire up session" surfaced of an unidentified man, suspected to be him, talking about a hand-rolled cigarette shown on screen. In wake of that video, which appeared under an account previously used by Smith, the NFL has launched an investigation into whether he violated protocols required of a suspended player seeking reinstatement from a substance abuse violation. While that investigation continues, Smith's move to now enter a treatment facility hardly seems coincidental, and more details regarding his situation should surface soon.
Wilds, who didn't play in Thursday's preseason finale, could be destined for the injured reserve/designated to return list with an LCL knee sprain, according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure.
Wilds could be stashed on the injured reserve/designated to return list if his knee injury is more serious than originally thought and if the Falcons want to keep Wilds along with Devonta Freeman, Tevin Coleman and Terron Ward. However, if his injury isn't all that serious, there's a chance he could edge Ward and earn the third running back role outright.
McDougle was waived by the Jets on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
McDougle was originally drafted in the third round of the 2014 draft, but his rookie season was quickly derailed by a torn ACL. The Jets had hoped that McDougle would rebound in 2015, but the 25-year-old never seemed to return to his old self after the injury.
